On the windows xp support page it says:


.. The Explorer.exe process may unexpectedly quit when you try to search for
a file in Windows XP or in Windows Server 2003
Discusses a problem that may occur after the Windows 2000 Resource Kit is
installed in Windows XP or in Windows Server 2003. To work around this
problem, uninstall the Windows 2000 Resource Kit.

That's my problem.

but it doesn't say how to do the uninistall, either there or on the linked
page.

where/what are the directions? ? ?

Thank you.

There is nothing in ADD or Remove programs that references the package.

however,

I got an email response from MS to a page that says windows NT and doesn 't
list xp in the APPLIES TO line

Text exchage follows.

Dear MS support,

Thanks for the reply.

The page you referenced does not say that the procedure applies to windows
xp in the bottom "APPLIES TO" line. I had seen it but didn't want to go
mucking in the registry if it wasn't the right one.
A link to the removal page from the notice listed on the xp support page
would be good and also adding the list of OS's involved in the APPLIES TO
line of the page you referenced would be nice. Please forward those requests
to the webmaster or whomever is in charge of maintaining those pages.

that is my problem, but
There are no directions on the page re: how one should do this.
a search of the website is not enlightening.

How does one uninstall that particular resource kit, and could you put that
info on the page. I am sure there are others with the same question.

Thanks.
